Welcome to the home page of the Siouxland Samplers Quilt Guild. We are a group of quilters, quilt lovers, fiber artists, fabric collectors, and late-night sewers. We enjoy making quilts, sleeping under quilts, or just looking at quilts. The expertise and support and inspiration we receive from each other make our group one you'll want to belong to. If you would like to find out more about what we do as a group, see the "About Us" link.
Show & Tell

Please join us at the First Presbyterian Church at 6th & Nebraska Sts. in Sioux City for our August 10th guild meeting.
There will be a lot going on at the meeting, with most of the attention centered on our upcoming quilt show (September 26-27th at the Sioux City Convention Center).
Please bring along your entry forms for entering quilts in the quilt show, or if you can't be there, please mail them and make sure they are postmarked by the August 10th deadline. You can find the quilt show entry forms under the Quilt Show tab on this page.
Check the current newsletter for all of the news about the quilt show.
Remember, time is short, so let's finish up those quilts, as well as items you will donate to the guild's boutique at the show and to the Little Quilt auction at the show. And don't forget to sign up for classes and the Saturday evening banquet & program.
We'll see you on the 10th!
Please join us at a special time, 6:30 pm on July 13th, for our guild meeting and annual July potluck dinner. We will meet at our regular meeting place, First Presbyterian Church at 6th & Nebraska, Sioux City, IA.
Please note that the current newsletter has an incorrect start time for our meeting; it is 6:30 rather than the 7:00 in the newsletter.
Bring a dish to share (salad, main dish, dessert) and your table service. After the meeting we will play games and have show and tell. We'll see you there.
Our June 8th Guild meeting will be back in its regular location at 6th & Nebraska at 7:00 pm. You will be an important part of the night's program: you are asked to bring either your first quilt or an "ugly" quilt to share with the group, along with the quilt's story or any lessons learned in the making of the quilt.
The Omaha Quilt Guild will put on their annual show June 18th-20th. Visit their website: http://www.omahaquiltersguild.org/ for details.
The entry form for our own quilt show is included with the June newsletter that you received by mail or email. Guild members may start entering those quilts now and up until the August 10th deadline.
